In addition to the regular menu, Mama Luisa also offers some excellent specials. On this particular Saturday I ordered the black pasta (squid ink) with seared scallops. Pasta was perfect and the scallops were just right. Two others in my party had the grilled swordfish. Both were very happy! Save room for dessert. Tiramisu was outstanding!! If you stay right in Newport you will still need to drive to the restaurant. Mama Luisa’s is almost at the end of Thames St. Parking is the real trick. The website claims parking in rear. However there is only space for 4 cars. Parking on the street is also impossible. Many of the streets in the area have “restricted parking.” I did find an area a few blocks away (little more than 5 minute walk) without the dreaded “restricted parking” signs. If you are driving down Thames (away from Newport Center) go past Mama Luisa’s to the next stop sign. That’s Morton Ave. Turn left you will see Morton Park on your right. Go to the end of Morton Ave, Spring St/Coggeshall Ave, make a right and park along the park.
